Adjustable Desktop Divider / Privacy Screen

Accessory Desk Context The trend towards open office plans has created great opportunities for creativity and collaborative employee interaction. The benefits of these open plans are numerous but can often create a loud and distracting environment with little affordance for individual privacy. The Adjustable Desktop Divider allows individuals to create a visual and auditory barrier at their workspace. Allowing individuals to retreat to seclusion from the hectic open office environment to reach optimal productivity. The ability to transition between a flat, open divider and a overhanging enclosure allows users to adjust their workspace based upon their task at hand. It creates a visual indicator to fellow employees, signaling when someone is available for collaboration or wishes to be left alone.
